Welcome to The Chesterfield Golf Club

The Chesterfield Golf Club (also known locally as Walton golf club), is a beautiful, well established and wonderfully maintained parkland course set amidst stunning views in North East Derbyshire. You can be assured of a wonderful welcome in our very attractive clubhouse bar, lounge and restaurant which have spectacular views down the 10th and 18th fairways towards the Peak District.

Come and enjoy the quality of our catering services which is second to none. Visitors can find out more information about our course and view photo sequences of most of our holes. You may also view current green fees and special offers for visiting parties. Look out for our next Open Day . Meantime do come along for an informal chat.

Our improvement programme has contributed to our course becoming what we believe is the one of the most attractive and highest quality courses in the North Midlands, also easily accessible from Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

Captain's Charity Bunker

Our Captain Martin has designated the left-hand side bunker of the 6th Green as the bunker which he hopes will bring in lots of money for his charities. If you land in this bunker you are requested to pay a fine which should be placed in the clearly labelled box on the bar. Please be generous with your money as it is all in a good cause.

CONGU Handicapping Changes

Changes to the CONGU Unified Handicapping System (UHS) came into effect on the 1st January 2018, documents (see below) explain the changes that have been introduced.
The most significant changes are:
The retirement of “Club Handicaps”, which is replaced by a new Category 5 (28.5 to 36.4) for Men and Category 6 (36.5 to 54.0) for both Men and Women, providing for a maximum handicap of 54.0 for all golfers.
Rules for Supplementary Scores has been relaxed to allow an unlimited number of score submissions per year and removal of the restriction of one per week. However, the restriction on Category 1 players remains.
England Golf have also issued some guidance in the shape of Frequently Asked Questions & Answers, these documents have also been made available here and here.
